My latest

I finished quilting the Pat Sloan Globetrotting Block of the Month.  Actually finished it last week.  Here you go with a couple of close ups of the quilting.  My original thought was just to do an all over design, but I just couldn't get myself to do it.




I also worked on some Christmas gifts.  Not gifts for me to give, but gifts to make for other people to give.  After all the guild boutique items was shown on my Facebook and blog, my sister and two cousins asked for some stuff for their family for Christmas.  How can I say no.

My sister wanted bowl cozies for her family.  Luckily I had a few left over from the boutique that didn't sell and just had to make a few more specifically for her.
I also made some cup cozies for a cousin.  (didn't get pictures) and then another cousin saw these cute pillows that another person in our guild made and wanted them for her grandchildren.  So I said yes and here are the four.
Today my husband, and in-laws took a trip to see Kelly and family.  I took one picture because I knew my mother-in-law would love it.  She was so excited to see her great-granddaughter and after a warm up period, Dylan let her sit on her lap.  She's a cutie, but rather shy.  Jack, is not.  He was a hoot.  But again, no pictures of him.
Last weekend I volunteered a the Central Valley Quilt and Sew Expo and Retreat at the Visalia Convention Center and sponsored by our local quilt store, Thimble Towne.  The ladies who attended were pampered and spoiled and I had so much fun helping them.  I stayed in one class the whole weekend which was the Dresden class using the Baby Lock Aria.  Now I am a Bernina girl but I have to say that this Baby Lock machine was quilt nice.  We even got to meet the president of Baby Lock and met some of the nicest teachers/instructors and fabric designers, etc.  Fun times.  Can't wait for next year.

Your Globetrotting quilt is quite a an accomplishment. Worth custom quilting.

WOW! You have been busy. The quilt looks great. I need to make some bowl cozies as well. Maybe I can get a lesson?
